AMATEUR STATUS & PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS
The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews defines an Amateur Golfer as follows:
“An ‘Amateur Golfer’ is one who plays the game as a non-remunerative and non-profit making sport and who does not receive remuneration for teaching golf or for other activities because of golf skill or reputation, except as provided in the Rules.”
GFGC does accept Professional Golfers as Members of the Club, however they are not eligible to win any club prize (including NTPs, D&Ps, Long Drive etc), competition or trophy. Club competitions are considered to be amateur competitions only.
Club membership allows a professional member to have a maintained handicap via GolfLink. He/she would be subject to the same handicapping procedures as amateurs.
Members will be set-up in the GolfLink handicap system (www.golflink.com.au).
To obtain an official AGU Handicap, Members must submit three cards marked by someone with a Handicap.
